IIASA’s main funding comes from its National Member Organizations (NMOs), with additional funding obtained from competitive contracts, grants, and donations from governments, international organizations, academia, business, and individuals. In 2014 IIASA received over €11.3 million in contributions from its NMOs and over €8.5 million from contracts, grants, and donations—both record-breaking figures for the Institute.
Between 2006-2014 IIASA’s research was awarded grants that amounted to €69 million. This was part of a total funding portfolio of €329 million of the external projects in which IIASA was and is involved.
Generous donations to IIASA’s Annual Fund from IIASA supporters and the Petr Aven Fellowship enabled two young scientists, from Thailand and the Russian Federation, respectively, to participate in the 2014 Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP).
The Institute continues to receive generous support through the nongovernmental organization Friends of IIASA (FoI), which enables US residents to make tax‑deductible donations to the Institute.
In 2014, thanks to many generous donations, IIASA nominated the first postdoctoral fellow in honor of Peter E. de Jánosi, IIASA’s sixth Director. By May 2015, over $1 million had been raised for the de Jánosi Fellowship Fund.
IIASA thanks all donors for their contributions in 2014 and is grateful for their belief in the goals and mission of this Institute.
